5 Reasons Why I’m Going to Pop Bottles for My 36th Birthday

The birthday blues can get anyone down. This year I’m going to shake it off and get happy. Here’s why I’m celebrating my 36th birthday like a rock star.

Bday GirlGo shorty! It’s my birthday in two days!

Remember when I said I wasn’t looking forward to the big 36? Though I’ve always been a birthday girl, celebrating to my hearts content and the demise of my liver, I shared weeks ago that I didn’t feel like celebrating much. I didn’t want to live it up even though this shorty always pops bottles on her birthday.

Well, my 36th birthday is in two days and I’ve had a change of heart. Even though grays have sprouted…everywhere. I decided (it is always a choice) to stop being a spoiled brat and be grateful for this last year.

35 was amazing. Full of changes, I proved that I am an independent go-getter and paved my own way professionally and personally. I ended a relationship that had served its purpose. I chose to love myself more and hold out for the right man. I was on FM radio in Los Angeles as the Love Guru on Exitos 93.9FM. I had my own place in Studio City, California and enjoyed the palm trees, beaches and great weather that La La Land offers. And I started over. I packed my bags, moved cross country and lived life without family and close friends for the first time in my life. I not only survived, I thrived. I know I can do anything now.

So, here’s to my 35th year ending and what’s to come at 36. And why I’m going to pop bottles, betches!

1. I am smitten. Yes, you heard me right. This girl right here met someone special. I don’t want to talk about it too much (who? me! yes! me!). Lets just say there is promise. He is amazing. He makes my heart flutter. It feels right. I am open and hoping that this someone special becomes a big part of my life.

2. I am proud of me. I don’t always say so, but I am. I have done so much, yet I don’t give myself enough credit. My close friends and family always tell me so. “We are so proud of you.” “You have done so well.” They are right. I was on the radio, for Pete’s sake! That’s huge! That’s why I am patting myself on the back right now and will continue to do so at 36. I’m going to focus on what I have accomplished not what I have yet to accomplish. Because what I’ve done so far in this lifetime is spectacular.

3. I am enough. I repeat: I am enough. I didn’t always think so. Now I know that I am not supposed to be perfect. It is okay to waver, make mistakes, and doubt my path. So what if I am sometimes impulsive, blunt and extra fiery?All of these parts – the good and the not so flattering – make me who I am. And who I am is enough.

4. I have a great group of friends and family. That alone is enough to celebrate, especially since my friends and family are all hot. #BirdsOfAFeatherFlockTogether

5. I am really great at partying. Truly, I am. So much so that I wanted to be a go-go dancer in my 20s. I shine when I am in the spotlight, on and off camera. I celebrate life and birthdays like no other. I embrace that part of me. That’s why you’ll catch me on top of a table on April 16th, twerking, laughing and shinning. Cause shorty, it’s my mother f-ing birthday.

Tell us. How do you celebrate your birthday?
